We added five new photos to Photo Gallery. All of them were taken in beautiful Rowayton. Your purchase of these and other of Marilyn’s photos and note cards will help some young people in Kenya to pay their rent and buy food, as they struggle to find jobs to replace the ones they lost during this past year.


We are self-supported missioners – we’ve rented our home and our Roton Point unit - and we’ve lived with the local people in Kenya for 15 summers. However, this year we are keeping in touch with our young friends there by text and email.

We’ve spent time with young people that we, and many of our friends and family members, have helped to go to school. It is our hope that these graduates will get good jobs - and that they will in turn help to raise other at-risk children out of their poverty.


There are now 260 students at The Rossholme Education Centre in Kiambiu slum in Nairobi. Thirty four new students showed up and wanted to be taken in because the schools they were attending last March have not reopened. Please pray for them to adjust well to being in Rossholme. And please pray too for all the other students - and all the teachers - and for all the students’ families to stay well.
